    Theoretically, this sounds good, but negative feedback will often discourage participation. You don’t want to have people who submit ideas feel like the rest of the community thinks their idea is dumb because of a downvote. In this case, any idea is a good one, and the best ones will rise to the top – they don’t need to also face negative criticism.
